Children (ages 6-11) and family members explore architecture through hands-on activities at our Saturday events that highlight a new design topic every month! Arrive at 10am for an introduction to innovative examples of local and global architectural projects. Then, children take the lead in using the design process to create their own design proposal for a group presentation. Volunteer architects and designers assist children and families along the way.

Most workshops will be held in the Center for Architecture & Design (1010 Western Ave, Seattle, WA 98104) from 10am – noon. Workshops are FREE to attend, but advance registration is strongly encouraged, as space is limited.

The SAF Family Workshop series has concluded for the 2016-17 school year. Workshops for the 2017-18 school year will be announced in July.
